Students visit James Millikin Homestead


DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) - Third graders in Decatur got a glimpse of how people lived before. Students got to see how the home functioned when it was first built by James Millikin. 

Staff and volunteers set the home up on Friday to see how the family and staff would prepare for a dinner. The students said it was like taking a journey back in time. 

Mr. and Mrs. Millikin Days has been a stable for the homestead since 1979.
